HENCE, [remember how it was] when thy Sustainer summoned Moses: "Go unto those evil doing people. (10) the people of Pharaoh: do they have no fear?" (11) He replied, "Lord, I am afraid that they will call me a liar. (12) and my chest will become constricted and my tongue will not be loosed (in my speech), therefore, send to Aaron. (13) And they have a crime against me, so I fear that they will kill me. (14) Allah said: "Nay! Go you both with Our Signs. Verily! We shall be with you, listening. (15) Go, then, to Pharaoh and say to him: 'The Lord of the Universe has sent us (16) (Saying): Let the Children of Israel go with us. (17) [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] said [to Musa (Moses)]: "Did we not bring you up among us as a child? And you did dwell many years of your life with us. (18) Yet you were ungrateful and have done the deed you did' (19) Moses said: "I did it then, when I was in error. (20) and I fled from you because I feared you. Then my Lord granted me wisdom and made me one of the messengers. (21) And is it a favor of which you remind me that you have enslaved the children of Israel? (22) Pharaoh said: "And who is this Lord of the Universe?" (23) He said: Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between, if ye seek to be convinced. (24) (Pharaoh) said to those around: "Did ye not listen (to what he says)?" (25) He said: Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers. (26) Said he: Most surely your Apostle who is sent to you is mad. (27) Moses continued: "(He is) the Lord of the east and the west, and all between them. If you only had any understanding!" (28) Pharaoh said, "If you take any deity other than myself, I will throw you into prison," (29) 'What, even if I brought you something clear' said he (Moses). (30) (Pharaoh) said: Produce it then, if thou art of the truthful! (31) So [Musa (Moses)] threw his stick, and behold, it was a serpent, manifest. (32) And he drew out his hand; thereupon it was white for the observers. (33)
